  7. Steve says:

    Transalta Corp. (TAC): What is your evaluation of Transalta, Canada’s largest non-regulated wholesale electricity generator? Current dividend is $1.16 annually (about 8.5%) vs. estimated 2013 earnings of $0.70. Estimated 2013 cash flow per share of $2.50 covers the current dividend, but can this continue while earnings “catch up”?

    Would like the market monitor to discuss Linn Energy.My name is Rose,Carson City,Nv

  14. Natural gas is America’s new ace in the hole. It is dramatically cheaper per gasoline gallon complement of energy power capacity. Liquid petroleum gets progressively more expensive to extract and the global demand for oil continues to increase, putting upward pressures on its pricing. Natural gas is dramatically lower in atmospheric CO2 deposition per unit of energy power release, a process that will ultimately reduce the costs that will be incurred in the adjustment and unknown risks to climate change. Local pollution from the concentrated presence of idling and slow moving long haul diesel trucks and dock-every-night trucks cost the health care system lots of money from from treating respiratory ailments. For many uses of diesel engines, natural gas seems like a no-brainer.

    Three stocks raise my interest in the seemingly inevitable growth of mobility power plants: Westport (WPRT) Innovations, Cummins (CMI) for NG engine technology development and manufacturing, and for the new infrastructure of providing CNG (compressed natural gas) and in some cases LNG, Clean Energy (CLNE).

    I’d like to see a review of these and perhaps other similar stocks on Friday.

    If you accept these suggestions, please let me know, so I can be sure to tune in.

    FTR: at S&P FTR has a 4-star rating, a BUY rating, a Strength Ratio of 84/100 and a Risk Assessment of MEDIUM = all good. But it has a Quality Rating of B minus. The stock price is almost half of what it was 2 years ago and the company has cut the dividend in half. I’m confused. Help!! I own over 2,000 shares. Sell??? When????

    Joe, from Ann Arbor, Michigan:
    Solazyme, szym, is developing technology to use algae to produce high value oils. It seems like they have a good lead in this area and may be able to produce these oils for lower cost than current sources. Is this a company to hold for the long run?

  26. Ken Morley says:

    hello Susie and Tyler,
    I’m curious about Neulion (NEUL). Could this company be in the vanguard of a tectonic shift in media distribution? Could it become in the sports space what Netflix looks to be in general entertainment? Combine this with Chromecast, and streaming suddenly looks even more threatening to existing media platforms. What do you think?
    Thank you,
    West Lebanon, NH
